355ml bottle, a single, 'cause that's how rebels roll, doncha know?

This beer pours a clear, pale copper amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, frothy, and rocky off-white head, which leaves some random sudsy splatter lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of musty, dank piney hops straight off, a bit of orange and white grapefruit pith, wet crackery pale malt, ethereal caramel notes, and further leafy, floral hops. The taste is bready, grainy, and slightly doughy pale malt, lemon floor polish, slightly resinous pine needles, a bit of white chalk, and further earthy, weedy and floral hops.

The carbonation is fairly equitable in its meted out frothiness, the body a decent medium weight for the style, and generally smooth, in the way of that IPA whose hops have better things to do. It finishes off-dry, the yeast starting to really stick, as the piney, citrusy hops lag, and the malt keeps on keepin' on.

Not a bad rendition of a west coast ideal from that totally opposite coast, as it were. It picks up on the trendy dank and floral notes to a tee, and keeps everything else quiet and on the down-low. Yup, Sam Adams all the way.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Deep golden colored and crystal clear. An inch thick of off white head and Brussels lacing are present. The nose is a blend of tropical and piney hops with the former in the lead. The mouth initially provides a crisp coppery bitterness. The back of the palate is more of a tropical bitterness with notes of pineapple. The mouth provides a light stickiness.
